General information about the Department Head of the department: Corr. Memb. of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Engineering Science Doctor, Professor, Honored Worker of Science and Engineering of Ukraine, Laureate of the State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology Avramenko Andrey Alexandrovich 

History of the Department The department was established on the basis of department of highly accelerated heat transfer, which for a long time was headed by Academician Vsevolod Tolubinskiy – one of the founders of the modern theory of heat transfer during boiling. Since 1988 the department has been being headed by his students and their scientific activity is a continuation of V. Tolubinskiy`s works in the physics of the process of vapor phase generating and the problems of ensuring the reliability of thermohydraulic zones of nuclear power reactors. In 2006 the department was renamed and since then has been being headed by corresponding member of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Avramenko Andrey. Contacts 
The main activities of the department
The main target of scientific research of the department connects with the thermophysical processes in the energy research equipment of nuclear and thermal power plants, heat and mass transfer and hydrodynamics in the elements of power equipment, the development of methods to improve of the reliability of their capital equipment, as well as economy, the development of the theory and methods of calculating thermal parameters of technological processes, machines and apparatus of power plants. Also topics of micro and nanoflows, bioconvenction phenomenon and hydrodynamic instability are also studied.
The detailed direction of the department
The department carries out experimental and theoretical studies of fluid flow and heat transfer in the channels of power reactors. The conditions of occurrence of crisis of thermal returning in steamgenerating channels in conditions of a sudden consumption of carrier of heat and a sharp increase in heat flux on the surface of the steam generating in order to verify the existing calculation methods for predicting the active zones of emergency operation of nuclear power plants are studied. Flow of supercritical parameters is studied. One of the most promising research directions, which are studied by the employees of the department are the use of microand nanoflows to intensify the heat and mass transfer processes. Problems of hydrodynamic and thermal instability, turbulence and bioconvection when exposed to a variety of factors are studied. Theoretical studies are carried out on the basis of the theory of nonlinear perturbations of group methods (classical symmetry group and the renormalization group), various numerical methods with special packages. The method of determination of boiling mode on the surface of metal products in the process of hardening on the basis of the information that are contained in the acoustic noise of the phase transition to create a system of automated control of the hardening process.
